No. Illuminate.Pro, by design, receives no compensation by solution / software providers for the technical solutions recommended. My focus is you and your business needs. I often do cost/benefit analysis consulting to help non-technical clients have a unvested voice on their side.
The short answer is “what best matches the clients preference”. Clients have appreciated selecting from the following communication methods:
- Dashboard where they can see summary or task level progress.
- Email updates as tasks are completed.
- Scheduled video / phone call where I “show and tell” to demonstrate progress and garner feedback.
It’s a logical question and I’m glad when clients ask. Social media sits as part of a larger business strategy dependent upon the founders and managements vision of who their target audience is and how to reach them. At Illuminate.Pro I am a ‘king maker” using technology and 20+ years of market observation to propel the clients vision and goals forward. I strategically work behind the curtain making clients success my first priority. By putting the client truly first I’m blessed to have ample referrals and constant new client engagement. I’m not interested in selling or promoting “how to do what I do” on the internet. That isn’t what delights existing clients or draws the caliber of clients I am fortunate to partner with.
Secondly, most information about web, social media services is noise in the sound bite world of social media. I observe that entrepreneurs and founders are inundated with sales pitches that prey on their fear of being behind in technology, social trend, competition or missing growing customer engagement. My approach is different. I strategically and systematically select and wrap technologies around the clients goals and vision. I’m deliberate about who your market is and how you reach them both online and offline. I have a deep understanding of business industries / verticals coupled with internet technologies, social media and SEO. It comes from being apart of much of it’s technical inception and maintaining the pulse of current trends and emerging technologies.
Your success is my success. There are no incentives to push you towards specific solutions. I’m your advocate exclusively.
Technical depth. I bring the talent and experience to understand artistic design and “user interfaces”, the full technology that sits behind what you see on a screen and ability to understand your business to select, install, integrate or build solutions that meet your goals.
Passion, Integrity & Creativity. I’ve retired from two large companies leaving highly successful technologies, processes and teams that have continued on. Illuminate.Pro is a boutique firm where I work with clients because I want to and believe in what your doing. When a client is not a match, I try to direct you to options that may be a fit.
Fun. My clients usually become friends as we work together. I love to learn about your business and bring solutions using technology.
Efficient and Fast. As a boutique firm I’m not building business for quantity. I focus on quality projects, quality clients and delighting them by turning around solutions often in 1/2 the standard industry time.
